I thought the end of the year would feel like a relief celebration, how I remembered it as a kid. But instead, it's been sort of anxiety producing. This week I remembered cucumbers and chocolate chips for school, a beach towel and sunscreen for Thursday.Max did wonderfully in his end of year play. I remember the parents in tears on the first day of school. I was smiling for him then. But Wednesday I was just overwhelmed that he's come so far this year. I am so proud of him. shop.
